Petworth Festival

Following the great success of 2019’s inaugural ‘pay-as-you-wish’ concert, the Petworth Festival invites you to join us for another concert featuring music that is all too often under- represented – in this instance music by two superb female composers, Dame Elizabeth Maconchy DBE and her equally luminous daughter, Nicola Lefanu.

The Bloomsbury Quartet – which excelled at a previous Petworth Festival when a Royal Academy of Music ensemble – brings Elizabeth Maconchy’s life and music into focus. The programme also includes music by Nicola Lefanu and by Maconchy’s teacher, Ralph Vaughan-Williams.

This wholly innovative evening is in two parts and mixes the music with a multimedia installation to help familiarise the audience with the programme and the players: a mixture of film, photography and ‘live’ programme notes.

Elizabeth Maconchy – String Quartet No. 1
Vaughan-Williams – String Quartet No. 2 in A minor
Nicola Lefanu – String Quartet No. 2
Elizabeth Maconchy – String Quartet No, 11
